So I was able to fit my 192-cm nordic skate skis diagonally flat in the bed of the R1T! Yay!!! The gentleman who owned the truck also had 2 snowboards and pairs of boots in the gear tunnel.
I think you could just stack several pairs on top of each other. The skis fit in the bed with the edge side down. Maybe put a thin layer of material between each set of skis to protect the edges, if desired.But you will only be able to get one set of skis in at that size.
which Yakima box do you have? Would be great if an R1T owner could post a picture with their Yakima box over the bed and over the cab with the crossbarsMy estimate is that my Yakima box will not fit over the bed. The clamps on the bottom of the box can only move so much. The factory cross bar mounts are too close to the back window. The box would likely need to go over the roof.
Thank you for posting this!192 will be tight. I tried my roommates 187s and they barely fit.
Luckily for me, my longest snowboard fits easy but I am scheming a different setup before next winter.
Sorry to hear that, but not shocking. A 192 Benchetler is a HUGE ski!My 192cm Benchetler 120s don't fit
On average my skis are 192 and some are even longer haha. Not sure what I'm gonna do come winter (though it did just snow again last night). Possibly just have them sticking out and secure with a bungee. Or I can probably just use the roof racks and my thule ski rack over the bed. Or maybe even my thule roofbox over the bed... though it would stick out but might be nice having the salt protection.Sorry to hear that, but not shocking. A 192 Benchetler is a HUGE ski!
Because of this thing called the “gear tunnel”.I am curious about why Rivian is not doing what the EV Silverado is, extending the bed to under the back seats. It would really help solve this issue. There might be reasons why they are not, I really don't know, but it does seem strange.
